"...the street finds its own uses for things... " - William Gibson - Burning Chrome, 1982.
Blind, bought off, sold, and passed around like pretty little slave girls servicing the bloated corporate puppetmasters.
If this passes it with be The whole world VS American Government OR America will just go anarchy.
I think you overestimate the number of people who know... or care.
I'm not american
A link with some informations : http://encyclopediadramatica.ch/SOPA
No is necesary that all people suport this kind of law.
Im feel very angry for SOPA
YAY FOR OPERATION BLACKOUT
Nintendo, Ea and Sony withdrew their support to SOPA
Edit: Story incase someone missed
Hey sorry i didnt look too see if people had put these up sorry if its a repeat but heres some links what will allow you to have a say!
Has sopa passed? has sony and godaddy stopped supporting it?
Actually it is, EA Games, Sony and Nintendo have backed out on supporting SOPA
use other bloody thread?
Wait...wheres the blood?
there is a thread already on sopa for alot more information i would vist there. however here are some links what you can read up on:
join the SOPA thread i have posted more links there too however i wouldnt get comfortablejust becuase its delayed dosn't mean that it wont still happen keep voicing your opinion and keep fighting against the act till it is gone !
SOPA threads merged.
Gonna lose a rather substantial part of my income should SOPA come into force.
Unfortunately, I can't do much about it because I'm not an American.
So get your asses up and make sure I'll keep making money you fags.
RETRACTION : Activision are not on the list of supporters for SOPA, EA is. The point is still valid, however I'd like to apologise for incorrectly naming Activision. I mixed up the two publishers in my notes.
Yup, US is learning from the Chinese and N Korea, don't sell off grampaq's ham radio quite yet eh!
thanks for the vid and welcome! Heard this on the news the other day, this vid explains it much more concisely.
Pissing off the interwebs, HAS IT WORKED YET?
Stop being heartless ... :
Jan. 14, 2012 Huffington post report about a favorable White House response to petitions opposing SOPA and PIPA:
White House Will Not Support SOPA, PIPA
Don't celebrate yet...
Similar to how Facebook can close your account with just one anonymous complaint from somebody, and you can't do anything about it.
1984 has finally arrived... only twenty-eight years late.
is wwp shutting down on jan. 18th?
Facebook can't close my account.
http://epetitions.direct.gov.uk/petitions/26143 http://americancensorship.org/ http://sopastrike.com/ some links for Uk/Us Not sure how Sopa strike is going to work whether domains who are against it just shut down or we pester the domain owners till they go dark if anyone knows how its going to work? tell tell tell ! ! !
Dont forget ACTA
Ok after some people replied to this thread I decided that it needs a little update. Im now waiting for the admins to change the title of the post. but now its about the sites that are supporting the fight against SOPA / PIPA.
There are some really giants in the online world that are joining in today to show they support against SOPA / PIPA. Here are some examples:
Wikipedia (english site only) total black-out
Google.com logo blackout (US only)
http://www.google.com (only on the US version of google)
Also there is a link to the petition on the front page, really nice. Would have loved if they removed the search function for just one day. Everyone in the world would know about SOPA / PIPA
Reddit total blackout.
Nice nice nice...
Minecraft.net total blackout
Also really nice.
Motion Picture Ass of America has a very very big stake in getting SOPA passed in its most draconian form, and is throwing a lot of lobbying money at this effort. Today, chief of the MPAA and former Senator blasts the SOPA blackout protests.
"A so-called “blackout” is yet another gimmick, albeit a dangerous one, designed to punish elected and administration officials who are working diligently to protect American jobs from foreign criminals."
Talk about disinformation. Here is the little threatened man's so-called website and his post -
SOPA help from wikipedia

People's reaction on twitter:
I love "SOO WHAT IS THIS PETITION THING ABOUT? SOMEBODY LET ME KNOW & PLEASE DONT USE BIG WIKIPEDIA WORDS WHILE DOING SO YO!"
LOL "Why doesn't Wikipedia want us to use SOAP anymore. The internet is dirty."
That comment section looks like the dome
hahaha love the twits... Man people are clueless.
Some sites are staying online, but posting alerts or notices for their users, urging them to take action to defeat SOPA and PIPA. Craigslist has already placed a prominent alert on its many metro hubs. Scribd, which calls itself the world’s largest online document repository, plans to activate an anti-SOPA/PIPA popup that visitors to its network will see when attempting to access documents.
And OpenDNS, the world’s largest independent DNS provider, has announced it will join in the protest by randomly censoring results returned by the OpenDNS guide.

What can you do to show your support?
Facebook users are also urged to protest by joining the “Stop Internet Censorship by Protesting SOPA event” and posting censored photo gallerys to their Facebook walls on the 18th.
WordPress users wanting to join in the protest might find the SOPA Blackout plugin, which adds a temporary 503 status and customisable page to your site automatically. Blogspot users can easily show their support, too.
